Introducing our New Pulstar Adjusting Instrument
It's a $20K Chiropractic spinal analysis and adjusting instrument! This instrument allows me to analyze your spine for loss of motion associated with Subluxations then it assists me in making a Gentle, Precise, Effective and Comfortable adjustment to the spine. After the adjustment, the Pulstar is used to re-check each vertebra to be certain that the Subluxation is corrected and normal motion is restored to the spine. Check out the video below...Introductory video for our new Pulstar Adjusting Technology
Inflammation- What can you do to reduce it to decrease pain and speed your healing?
Do you recall that I was starting a strength training and fitness program with Sean Ferguson and his wife, Alexia from Granite Peak Performance? Well, it's been a big success for me. I'm moving better and healing better! If you haven't contacted him yet to get your own personalized online workout program, I can say from personal experience now that you're missing out so visit their website at www.granitepeakperformance.com for more information, you'll be glad you did. I learned something else from Sean that was worth its weight in Gold. There is a supplement company called Thorne which has some spectacular anti-inflammatory supplements. Each lot is tested by a third party to be certain that the supplement is pure and only contains what they say it does. As you know I have suggested Standard Process's Boswellia Complex and Turmeric Forte along with a healthy fat to take down inflammation. As it turns out, Thorne has already combined these ingredients into one supplement that's less expensive than the Standard Process products. It's called Phytoprofen and combines ginger, Boswellia, and curcumin phytosome (turmeric) to support healthy cytokine balance. Thorne does have separate Boswellia and Curcumin products but this one already has it combined and it's the one I'm going to buy when my Standard Process runs out. Also, Thorne has an Omega 3 that's high in EPA. The only other company I ever saw do this is Nordic Naturals but Thorne has somehow made theirs less expensive as well. There are two components of Omega 3 oil, DHA and EPA. It's the EPA that is beneficial in reducing inflammation whereas the DHA (although it has some other benefits) can increase the inflammation response. Thorne's Super EPA and Super EPA pro go together great with the Phytoprofen to make it more bioavailable. Let's just say that I'm pretty impressed and I'm going to start taking their two a day multivitamins as well. If that's not enough, ALL of their products are labeled and indicate if they are Dairy free, Soy free, Gluten free, Vegan and whether or not they are derived from natural flavors or colors. Check out this link to read more about how to reduce inflammation in an article from the Mayo Clinic. Incidentally, Thorne is the only supplement company that the Mayo Clinic endorses. Here's a short side note about Thorne if you're working out regularly- Their Protein powder and strength training supplements are used in most University settings for the college athletes. Thorne's professional athlete and collegiate athletic team collections can be found by clicking HERE. Their protein powders, creatine and other supplements are great.
OK, We'll keep this February newsletter short and sweet! Get in to be checked and adjusted with the Pulstar Adjusting technology and check out my new favorite supplement company. Now, how about something to bring a smile to your face?
And now we'll end with a Valentine's Day Prayer
Dear Lord God Almighty, allow us to use this Valentine's Day month to remind us of just how important and powerful LOVE truly is. Help us to spread love where there is hate and apathy. Help us to be kind and nurture loving relationships. We pray this month that families are strengthened, hearts are mended, bodies are healed, marriages are restored, and your Love and Light shine Brightly through us in a new and meaningful way so that we can be an example for others. Please continue to let us feel Your comforting love in our lives and Lord we give ourselves over to You to perfect in us this gift of love so that we may be able to express it and share it with others. We pray all this in Jesus' precious name, AMEN.
In Health and Faith,
Dr. Jay, Kim, Lori and Nastassja
